Curren$y - #JetsGo by aLee860
The Jet Life crew, Curren$y Young Roddy Trademark Fiend, are putting out my favorite rap right now. Look over at the Mixtape page and its basically anything they have released along with Wiz, Big K.R.I.T., and Stalley (all associates). So I figure it was time to put up a real post about my favorite crew around. Highly recommend going over to Jets Fool to check out a bunch of funny videos and new tracks from those fools. Below are links for new mixtapes, a few quick write ups, tour dates and one awesome video at the end.
Up top is the new cover for the next Curren$y album. That this is pretty freakin sweet. That should be a enough to brghten your day, if it isn't then check out "#jetsgo". "#jetsgo" is the first single off the album, good to hear the man get back to more jazz-y beats again.
A couple months ago Young Roddy and Trademark released a new mixtape, Jet Life to the Next Life. It is a fine album that has a couple tracks with Curren$y on it and makes for a good listen. They are not breaking the Jet Life mold, but it is still entertaining and worth checking out.
Last, but not least, we have Fiend/International Jones who just dropped Life Behind Limo Glass mixtape. I have not heard it yet, but I am very excited to. The International Jones Tennis Shoes and Tuxedos mixtape has been one of my favorites!
